    The biggest single improvement to animal welfare in 20 years’: Puppy farms to be outlawed in WA
    PerthNow
    February 10, 2020 4:25AM
    Puppy farms will be outlawed and the purchase of puppies from pet shops banned under new laws to be introduced to the Western Australian Parliament.

    Premier Mark McGowan has committed to ending over-breeding and the operations of illegal breeders.

    The legislation will also track dogs throughout their lives using a central registration system and will give authorities power to shut down dodgy or illegal breeders.

    “Dogs are an important part of many families in Western Australia. We want to make sure they are looked after and treated well throughout their lives,” Mr McGowan said in a statement.

    “The new laws will mean dogs can be traced throughout their lives through a central registration system, allowing authorities to identify dodgy or illegal breeders and shut down their operations.

    “We will also be providing assistance to pet shops to help them transition to dog and puppy adoption centres meaning they can re-home displaced and abandoned dogs.”
    Maylands MLA and Puppy Farming Working Group chair Lisa Baker said the legislation will make the state’s dogs and puppies safer, reduce the opportunity for illegal puppy farming and encourage better welfare for all dogs.

    “It supports good breeding practices and responsible pet ownership,” she said.

    Western Australians will be able to trust that the dogs and puppies they are bringing into their homes have not come from illegal puppy farms, and, if necessary, can be traced back to the person who bred them.”

    The RSPCA said the new laws were the biggest single improvement to animal welfare in WA for 20 years.

    “It is now up to every dog lover in WA to let their local member of parliament know that these reforms are important to ensure the legislation is passed quickly,” the organisation said.

    “The sooner the legislation comes into law, the sooner it will help prevent some of the suffering and cruelty to dogs.”

    Lucy’s Law: Vets reveal the true cost of puppy and kitten farms
    ‘Petfished’ campaign urges people to spot ‘red flags’ when buying a puppy or kitten ahead of ban on third party sales - ‘Lucy’s Law’ coming into force on 6 April

    Stark new findings reveal that buying a pet from a low-welfare breeder could cost pet owners an extra £5,000 in vet bills over just 12 months, as a new government campaign is launched urging people to take simple steps to research the seller before buying a puppy or kitten.

    More than half of vets surveyed (54%) said that the poor conditions of puppy or kitten farms can lead to illnesses and complications which would incur treatment costs of over £1,500 in the first year of the animal’s life.
    In some severe cases, the costs could rise to £5,000 or even result in the pet being euthanised.

    These new figures demonstrate the extent of suffering for both owner and pet caused by puppy farms and third party puppy and kitten sales as the trade relies on a high-volume, low-welfare model.

    The government has already changed the law to ban commercial third party puppy and kitten sales, known as Lucy’s Law, and is going further to improve the lives of animals including supporting a Private Member’s Bill to raise the maximum penalty for animal cruelty from six months to five years, and consulting on tackling excessively long journeys for live animals.

    Today’s launch of a government campaign will call on the public to also play their part to tackle the cruel trade of puppies and kittens by encouraging prospective owners to be aware of illegal, low-welfare breeders and look for ‘red flags’ when buying a new pet.
    This will help to disrupt the demand for these animals and further suffocate the trade alongside the introduction of Lucy’s Law. The campaign, called ‘Petfished’, outlines the deceitful tactics pet sellers use to trick buyers and sell their animals to line their pockets.

    Christine Middlemiss, UK Chief Veterinary Officer, said:

    Vets see the tragic effects of ‘Petfishing’ first-hand but so too do the public who may be put through the pain and cost of looking after, and even losing, a sick puppy or kitten due to the conditions it was bred in.

    It’s vital that prospective pet owners take responsibility for where they get their pets from and avoid puppy-farms and unscrupulous dealers.
    The campaign launched today sets out the simple steps that can be taken by the public to spot the warning signs and ensure their puppy or kitten is given the best start in life.

    Animal Welfare Minister, Lord Goldsmith, said:

    I am delighted that a ban on third party sales of puppies and kittens is coming into force – it is a crucial piece of legislation that will help us tackle the abhorrent and heart-breaking trade of pets.

    Our campaign will help raise awareness of the dangers associated with buying pets online and deceitful sellers. The animals reared on puppy farms are often in awful conditions which can lead to chronic health problems, behavioural issues, and, in the most tragic cases, death. This simply has to stop and the public can do its bit to help.

    We urge anyone thinking about getting a pet to do the right thing.
    Do thorough research and ensure you go to a reputable breeder in the UK – don’t get ‘Petfished’.

    The poor conditions suffered by puppies and kittens include early separation from their mothers, huge numbers of animals cramped in unhygienic spaces, and the likelihood of long journeys from the place they were bred to their new home. All of these can contribute to an increased risk of disease and behavioural issues.

    Our survey of vets showed the need to inform prospective pet owners of the issues attached with buying from disreputable breeders, with all questioned saying the public need clear advice on how to buy pets responsibly.

    The campaign launched today urges people to ask themselves ‘Who’s the person behind the pet?’.
    It introduces a new phrase ‘Petfished’ - much like ‘Catfished’, when someone is lured into a relationship by a fictional online persona, it refers to deceitful pet sellers who use a similar tactic to trick buyers, mistreating animals and selling them at high-volume to line their pockets.

    On 6 April 2020, the ban on commercial third party puppy and kitten sales – known as Lucy’s Law – will come into force in England. The ban will help to crack down on puppy farms by disrupting the supply-chain of low-welfare breeders which relies on third party sales. This new legislation, married with the ‘Petfished’ campaign which seeks crack-down on the public’s demand for this trade, is further evidence of the government’s commitment to improving the welfare of the nation’s much-loved pets.

    Anyone looking to buy a pet can get tips and advice on the new website: getyourpetsafely.campaign.gov.uk

    Claire Horton CBE, Battersea Chief Executive said:

    Battersea strongly condemns the practice of puppy farming that puts profit ahead of basic animal welfare. Separated from their mother too early, sold for a vast profit and too easily bought on impulse, these pets can suffer lifelong health problems as a result of such early mistreatment.

    No pet owner wants to find themselves taken in by ‘petfishers’ and end up having to make potentially heart-breaking choices, so we welcome Defra’s new campaign which will provide much-needed advice on how to buy a pet responsibly. We also encourage anyone thinking about getting a new dog or cat to visit their local rescue centre where they can also gain helpful advice about whether a puppy or kitten is the right choice for them.

    RSPCA Inspector Callum Issit, who appears in the Petfished short film, said:

    There’s always been a high consumer demand for puppies and kittens and sadly there are people out there who try and meet this demand by prioritising quick cash profits at the expense of animal welfare.

    Puppy farming in particular is a disturbing industrial-scale attempt to meet this demand and the low-welfare conditions and animal illnesses this leads to are distressing.

    Some of the worse cases I’ve seen have resulted from so-called ‘back-yard’ kitten breeders removing a kitten from its mother too early with little chance of survival or hundreds of puppies kept together in their own faeces with matted fur.

    It’s important the public remain vigilant. If you suspect foul play at any stage when researching and buying your pet, report the seller immediately to the RSPCA or your local authority to help us stop this.
    If you’re looking for a new pet to join your family please consider giving a rescue animal a new home.

    People should follow these tips to help spot warning signs that a puppy or kitten has been raised in low welfare conditions:

    Research. Have a look at the seller’s profile and search their name online.
    If they are advertising many litters from different breeds, then this is a red flag.
    Check contact details.
    Copy and paste the phone number into a search engine.
    If the number is being used on lots of different adverts, sites and dates then this is likely a deceitful seller.
    Check the animal’s age.
    Puppies and kittens should never be sold under 8 weeks old – do not buy from anyone advertising a puppy or kitten younger than 8 weeks.
    Check the animal’s health records. Make sure the seller shares all records of vaccinations, flea and worm treatment and microchipping with you before sale.
